When should a bakery pull its goods?

I just bought a slice of opera cake from a very good local bakery, and it was so dry that even my hubby wouldn't eat it. I know that bakeries have to watch their costs/wasteage, but when I'm paying $5 for a stale pastry (the same as a person who got a fresh slice 1 or 2 days earlier) isn't that just wrong? It makes me not want to patronize them anymore. What do you think?
